Paper Abstract

Various drinks served in different establishment always come with ice. Ice is the main component in preparing cold drinks- it also brings benefits to human health. However, due to poor sanitation in ice manufacturing, it can also put human health at risk. Escherichia coli and Enterococcus faecalis are the most common bacteria that surrounds the ice. Too much intake of contaminated ice caused by these two bacteria can lead to serious illness. On this study, the researchers presented a prototype that detects the growth of the bacteria, Escherichia coli and Enterococcus faecalis, using impedance microbiology and image processing. In addition, Graphic User Interface (GUI) was also be implemented in this study. GUI displays the captured images of the different phases of the sample and the concentration of bacteria present.
